Today, both retailers and supply chain managers are under intense pressure to closely track and manage inventory to ensure the right inventory is in the right place at the right time.
Stores with inaccurate inventory can experience frequent out-of-stocks, lost sales and poor customer service, thereby negatively impacting customer loyalty. Compensating with excess safety stock can lead to markdowns, resulting in lower overall profit margins. An imprecise inventory count also hampers the ability to offer omnichannel experience.
Most organizations that use manual or barcode workflows for inventory do so
infrequently because these methods are time consuming and labor intensive.
The new Honeywell IH25 RFID reader, combined with RFID tagging, offers an easier
solution to keep track of high moving inventory with less effort. Retailers can count
inventory in the store and warehouse 25 times faster than with barcodes, often
in a matter of a few hours, enabling more frequent inventory updates and closer
management of inventory levels. Easy to use and ergonomically balanced, when
paired with a Honeywell mobile computer, the IH25 offers fast, accurate UHF
RFID inventory capture and convenient, integrated 1D/2D barcode capability.
